Peeps

It's that time of year again. Candies that have not seen the light of day in over a year are resurrected. Creme eggs & Peeps inhibit the bottom on the candy food chain for me. Actually, I am not a big candy fan. Reese's or Butterfingers occasionally. There is just something about the combination of peanut butter and chocolate.

Anyway, back to the Peeps. They really are scary things. Peeps, it seems, colonized our planet in an effort to escape the ammonia rich environment on Venus, at least that is what scientists Scully and Mulder shared back in 1996. There is an abundance of scientific research on these invaders.

Tried to set one on fire once. Animal rights groups are probably cringing, but lets face it they are sugar and oxygen mostly. I rather like my oxygen, unsweetened. The way we take care of our oxygen around here, they will most likely have to move on to another planet soon enough. Wonder where they will go next?

Keep an eye on these pesky critters. When they start to disappear, you may want to start considering real estate somewhere outside our atmosphere. Or maybe we could just stop treating our planet like a trash dump.

Broad range of topics today. Only you could tie together Peeps and a green planet. Blessings.

Peeps are gross. I do like Cadbury Eggs. I'm glad they are in the stores right now.

We are bringing Peeps to your house today. The Peep invaders are on the prowl. We are peep fans.

@daniel...having spent a great deal of time in the forest recently, it has become increasingly frustrating environmentally. Thus the rant, with a fun slant provided by my peeps.

I pretty much detest peeps, at least the marshmallow kind.

"I want to believe" that Mulder and Scully prevented the invasion from happening! At least that is what, they told me, happened in the the end lol

Peace and love

It's a Peep invasion this time of year. I hate Peeps and I am not sure why my mom always put them in our baskets. She still likes them. Ugh. My daughters like them too. Ugh. Hubby at least has never liked them. Thankful. Reeses PBC now that is a different story. I always have them in my house. I rarely eat them but I keep them for the grandkids.

Great post, I really enjoyed it. Thanks.

God bless.

Megan said...

I prefer the "microwave" peeps demise. It is fun and your kids will love it. Kind of old school, though, but then, I AM old. What did you expect?

Brian Miller said...

@ronda - microwave? will have to try that one.

@megan - aerosol and a lighter...i was young, please forgive me.

Easter Bunny...please pass the Peeps to someone else

OMG, Ronda is revealing her dark side by talking about microwave peeps???!
Now I know what I'm going to do this weekend!

Don't think we have Peeps here in the UK. If we did I think I would have to introduce them to the microwave, having seen it done on YouTube.
But cadburys creme eggs are wonderful straight from the fridge.
